We calculated how many cows HP will murder to make its new leather laptop


We now have loads of questions on HP’s pretty new leather-bound laptop computer, the Spectre Folio. Will it have that beautiful leather-based odor? Will it age like a positive e-book? Simply how sticky will it get?

However, most significantly of all, what number of cows are going to utter their final moo earlier than being murdered and changed into HP Spectre Folios?

We’re right here to search out out.

The journey begins

The primary port of name was making an attempt to get some info from HP itself. I hoped I’d get a straight reply once I requested:

  • How a lot leather-based is there on every laptop?

Sadly, my crafty strategy didn’t precisely, you realize, work. The reply I acquired?

  • “We will’t disclose the precise quantity/measurements of leather-based, however might be able to offer you a proportion.”

A proportion isn’t going to chop it. I have to know the exact(-ish) variety of cows which are going to die, dammit. This implies we’d like maths. First cease, we have to discover out…

The scale of the laptop computer

Fortunately, I discovered them on HP’s Spectre Folio tech specs page.
